From Samos there are regular ferries (as well normal as socalled "superfast ferries") to other islands in the surroundings, such as Ikaria, Lipsi, Leros and Patmos.
You can check the times and prices and if you like you can book a ticket ahead on the site of Ferries-booking.com. Especially if you want to be on a superfast ferry during the high season this could be a good plan.
Samos has got good daily ferry-connections to Piraeus and regular ferries to its neighbouring islands Kos, Patmos, Leros, Rhodes, Ikaria, Fourni and several other islands. If you want to know for sure you must check the routes / schedules of the ferries on the internet. To check ferry schedules and book online - click here.
Most of the times the hotelowner of the hotel where you booked knows best. It can also take a while before schedules are aproved and in this case you will have to return to look again and see if things have changed, because the first conclusion you make could be that there are no ferries between the islands you picked. In short: it is unpredictable but usually it is not a problem as well. There are regular ferries from GA ferries from Piraeus to Paros, Naxos, Ikaria, Fourni and Samos (Karlovassi and Vathi - see picture on the right top), and there are also ferries from "Samos Ships" going to the nearby islands almost every day (see picture on the left top). For trips from Piraeus to Samos you can also check Kallisti Ferries and Hellenic Seaways who also makes the route to Samos having stops in Syros and Ikaria.
The Nissos Kalymnos of A.N.E. Kalymnou sails from Pythagorion (Samos) to Agathonissi, Arki, Patmos, Leros and Lipsi to Kalymnos (see picture on the right) and Aegean Flying Dolphins has fast boats from Pythagorion to Patmos, Lipsi, Leros, Kalymnos and Kos (see picture on the left). Other connections by ferry go to the southern island of Rhodes, the northern islands of Chios, Lesvos (Lesbos) and Limnos and to the mainland towns of Thessaloniki, Alexandroupoli and Kavala.
Samos has also got an international airport with regular flights from several countries during tourist season, and good connections from Athens served by Aegean Airways and Olympic Airways, which have been voted best European airline for years at a stretch.
